3 reasons Matthew Stafford could be done in Detroit
The Detroit Lions could lose their starting quarterback this offseason
The Detroit Lions are in the midst of yet another regime change in the Motor City. And this time around the future of Matthew Stafford is in serious doubt.
The longtime quarterback of the Lions has been the subject of much speculation following the ouster of head coach Matt Patricia and general manager Bob Quinn back in November. Many are wondering if Stafford will survive this latest shakeup in Motown.
Here are three reasons why Matthew Stafford could be done in Detroit …
3. Another Rebuild?
Stafford has played under three different head coaches during his 12-year career in the Motor City. And that also includes four different offensive coordinators and their varying schemes. Unfortunately, none of them have resulted in a single postseason victory for the aging passer.
At what point do you start thinking maybe it’s time to move on? Clearly, Stafford has the skill set to be successful in the NFL. But his potential has never truly been unlocked in the Motor City.
Despite putting up premier numbers at times, Stafford’s legacy is in serious jeopardy as he could go down as the greatest quarterback in franchise history never to record a single meaningful win.
About to turn 33-years old, is Stafford really willing to go through another rebuild in Detroit? To play under his fourth different head coach and potentially his fifth offensive coordinator in the Motor City? Or would a new environment be the key to securing Stafford a Hall of Fame ending?
